Neighbours From Hell by David Whyld

Everyone has bad neighbours. It's just one of those things. But surely no one in the whole wide world has neighbours as bad as yours. For you live next door to the Crumms. But are they really the sadistic murderers you suspect them of being? Or is the truth something different?

I played the ADRIFT version of this years ago. One of the first ADRIFT games I ever played, actually. It's funny in kind of a morbid way, and the plot is a simple one that involves you searching your neighbors' house for evidence of a crime...and there is a LOT of evidence, but you can't go to the police until you find it all. Attention to detail is a definite requirement to beat this.

Anyway, still fun even after all this time, but David Whyld was an extremely prolific author back then and many of his other games are better.

...and I'm not sure what the deal is with all the extremely confused people below, I'm just going to assume that Quest users in 2013 weren't very bright.

Still, it completely obliterates anything you could ever make. At least we can thank you for not being a complete immature idiot and writing things like:

This is the worst game I'v seen. A very bad game. I suggest to you people: DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME. SAVE YOURSELF TIME. ITS BAD!!!!!

And giving it a one star rating like most of the other retards David has spoken with have.

As for the actual game, I pretty much agree with what everyone else here has said. Original, fun, not too easy yet not too hard, not too long yet not too short. All the good elements of a great Text Adventure game.

The story is ok, but the game is to short.
the game is very simple, but over all It's
not bad for It's length, just an easy game.

this is a very annoying game.
i dont want to read the book.
i dont mind reading the blurb.
it does have a pretty interesting story.
i dont realy think it is worth playing.

i've played quite a few of these quest games,and this is one of the better ones. i liked the basic premise. i seemed to have got further than most of the previous reviewers but still cant get past bob! a little help would be much appreciated. anyway keep up the good work. bring on the next challenge.
